Electric panel upgrades are done for a variety of reasons:

  • Adding an appliance or item that requires more energy or power than you have, i.e. central air, oven, pool, hot tub, spa, power equipment
  • If you have an old style fuse box panel. Good idea to upgrade the electric panel box for safety reasons as well.
  • Kitchen remodel or renovation
  • Room addition
  • A move to a home with undersized electrical service

New electrical panels

If you have an old fuse box system in your house or office, you are probably having your life interrupted a lot of times due to the need of replacing blown fuses. More than just the inconvenience, having an old electrical system can also represent a risk to your safety.

  • Are you unable to run certain appliances at the same time?
  • When your AC goes on, do you trip circuit breakers?
  • Can you only run one kitchen appliance at a time?
  • Are flickering lights a common occurrence?
  • Are you still using a panel that uses screw in fuses?
  • If this sounds like your home, then we recommend that you replace or upgrade your electrical panel immediately.

Homes and office today require more and more electricity. Our homes are becoming high-tech with all kinds of equipment to help our daily lives.  The office is even far more complex with computer systems, telephone systems, equipment and more. Your electrical system needs to be prepared to handle all that.

Updates and Newer Appliances May Require More Power

The bottom line is that the advances in technology require more energy. Computers, microwaves, front loading washer and dryers, and super sized refrigerators cannot run on electrical panels that are 40 years old.

The electrical load is too great for the panel to handle. Despite the age of your home, you can make the changes necessary to buy all the appliances you need. You might have an antiquated fuse box that is simply unsafe and unable to manage your electrical needs.  Upgrading the service panel will accommodate the additional appliances in your home.

Replacing your old kitchen appliances is enough to put a significant strain on your old panel. Just because the outlets exist, does not mean that they can manage the electric required to keep them running.
